Ways to Add Color

Many may think that to achieve a sophisticated interior design aesthetic you should use muted modern colors.  And while there is a plethora of beautiful designs that utilize this palette, it is quite possible to incorporate vibrant bright colors without sacrificing elegant style.

We know that it can be overwhelming when it comes to design and décor.  There are so many choices, and so many styles. But we have found that the best way to tackle this endeavor is to be brave.  The greatest thing about these decisions is that they are not finite.  Of course you don’t want to waste your hard-earned money, but you may be surprised by an unexpected choice.  If you are feeling a little adventurous, consider some of these simple ways to add some color into your life.


Your kitchen backsplash certainly serves a function, but this is also a simple way to add depth to your kitchen design. There are so many possibilities to choose from, including texture, material, and color.  Especially if you have a good amount of white or wood cabinetry, this can add a welcome pop of color.


Wall Paint

We bring this one up a lot, but choosing a paint color can make a drastic difference to your home.  It can also be a daunting undertaking, staring at the wall of endless options.  This is a great time to step outside of your comfort zone.  Surprise your guests (and yourself) with a bright and unexpected color that really makes a statement.


Throw Pillows

Most of us want to create a cozy and comfortable atmosphere in our home.  This can be accomplished in various ways.  A great way to allow for versatility is to invest in solid or neutral furniture, and spice it up with colorful throw pillows.  Mix and match designs, colors, and textures, for an eye-catching effect.



Kitchen counters can make or break your enjoyment of this area.  Having enough counter space is essential, and having a desirable material can make a significant difference.  Yet, many people stick with the traditional styling for this element.  Think outside of the box and opt for a colorful kitchen counter.  This can also be a solution if you are on a budget.


Styles change at the drop of a hat, but this can be good news.  That means that it never hurts to experiment with different styles.  Don’t feel that you must blend in with neutrals.  Add some color to brighten your day, and surprise your guests with your bold style.
